    Is this sentence correct?

    Hello All
    I hope to know your opinions about this sentence:

    "Based on the reported safe and toxic doses of BPA, we aimed to investigate the relationship between the extent of DNA damage and the histopathological changes in the brain tissues of mice exposed prepubertally to different range of doses covering the environmentally relevant exposure to BPA."

    Best regards.

    Have you written this sentence yourself, Jehane Ibrahim? If not, please state its source and author.

    Are you asking for our opinion on the grammar or the scientific content of it?

    You cannot continue to give your threads the same, unhelpful title. A better and more eye-catching title for this would have been The brain tissues of mice.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    I have written it myself, and I am asking for your opinion on the grammar not scientific content.
    I will apply your advice regarding the title in the following posts.

    Re: Is this sentence correct?

    I am not a teacher.

    It looks all right until, "...different range of doses covering the environmentally relevant exposure to BPA."

    "...different range of doses" needs an article or should be, "...different ranges".

    I also find, "...environmentally relevant exposure to BPA." very odd. Perhaps the scientific community can extract meaning from environmentally relevant, but I can't.
